    Is PNG the new JPEG?

    Is it?

    I've been noticing people using PNG more and more on websites and using JPEG less and less. Is the JPEG finally dying out?

    well PNg can also do some GIF things so it is kind of a file that mixing the best of the two into it. basically it is smaller than GIf, bigger than a JPEG, but does both, except no animation >.<

    Re: Is PNG the new JPEG?

    Ok let me clear the JPEG and PNG up lol

    JPEG- is design for either full color (24bit) or black and white/grayscales of photos. JPEG is lacking when you make your tag and save it as a JPEG it isn't quite identical to what you see in Photoshop or any other program. Color details aren't perceived as well as small details of light or dark. So JPEG is best for portraits or photos of yourself,friends or places you visit.

    PNG- is something that was new built so that it could replace the older GIF format (not the animation one) PNG supports up to 48bit of true color. For PNG when you save a file or resave it numerous times the quality will not be downgraded, but JPEG will be. So like I said PNG is just a replacement for GIF, yet it does not lose quality when saving a picture over time


    JPEG supports - true color and grayscale
    PNG supports - truecolor, grayscale and palette-based
